    Coach Len during last year’s membership drive, impressive specimen that.


    The 200 odd citizen's of Ivanhoe are fiercely devoted to their footy team, having finally been admitted into the ORFFL at the start of the 2017 season after years of lobbying there is a huge expectation surrounding the team's prospects.

    The local ground has 4 sticks at each end and something not very grassy in between

    The pubs not pretty but the beer is cold

    The team has been systematically gutted of older players who won't be there for our flag yily, or would be on Zimmerman frames for it, all focus has been on bringing in youth with promise and skill.
    The current squad looks like this;
    Player Age
    Defenders
    Logan Austin 23, Griffin Logue 20, Sam Mayes 24, Andrew McPherson 19, Daniel McStay 23, Lachlan Plowman 23, Sam Taylor 19
    Midfielders
    Blake Acres M/F 22, Paul Ahern M/F 21, Darcy Fogarty M/F 18, Nicholas Graham M/F 24, Kyle Langford M/F 21, Wayne Milera M/F 20, Will Setterfield M/F 20, Jaidyn Stephenson M/F 19
    Jacob Allison 20, Brayden Fiorini 20, Tom Liberatore 26, David Swallow 25, Adam Treloar 25
    Forwards
    Blake Acres M/F 22, Paul Ahern M/F 21, Darcy Fogarty M/F 18, Nicholas Graham M/F 24, Kyle Langford M/F 21, Wayne Milera M/F 20, Will Setterfield M/F 20, Jaidyn Stephenson M/F 19
    Jack Billings 22, Tom Lynch 25, Esava Ratugolea 19.95, Taylor Walker 28
    Rucks
    Archie Smith RF 22, Nathan VARDY 27

    Expecting plenty of positional changes, anticipating may be a better word for next year and beyond.

    I know it’s not the norm in FL for anyone to maintain a team page, call me a revolutionary, or just awesome, idgaf either way ;)

    I would suggest replacing " the Glamas too good 1032 to 757" with " the glamas less crap 1032 to 757."

    glamas with a lower case g was part of our marketing strategy of going below the radar prior to finals. That has been a massive failure, new slogan might be "average early, poor late" - akin to a depressing weather forecast.

    Round 14, 9 players onfield, 10 LTIs, admittedly a couple traded in that way as they should be cheap gets for next year, onward and downward this year though. Yet to come up with a long term name for this award, but for this year I think we will go with "The Least Shit Knight"
